Supergroup Summer Moon, which features Nikolai Fraiture (The Strokes), Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), Camila Grey (Uh Huh Her), and Noah Harmon (Airborne Toxic Event) appeared out of nowhere over a year ago to woo me with a muggy dance rock jangler named With You Tonight. The track, which they marked as a demo at the time, has now received one of those newfangled interactive 360 degree music video treatments, giving us the opportunity get up and strut around once again to the sweltry gem. I’d imagine if Porches, Broken Bells, and Spanish Gold jammed out together, it would sound something similar to this delightful charmer. The video accompaniment tells a tale about two people coming home from a dance ball and stumbling into a strange, occult world. I guess it arrives just in time for Halloween, then! Summer Moon is planning to release a debut album in 2017. With You Tonight is out on all major retailers. 

OFFICIAL VID: Linkin Park – Lost In The Echo

August 30, 2012

Linkin Park announced their brand new video for single Lost In The Echo off latest album Living Things, which, in my opinion, is one of their best out of the past few. They return to form in some of the songs rather than try too hard to experiment. Not to say the previous albums were bad, but they weren’t the great LP we loved in the early years. For Lost In The Echo, they decided to experiment in the video instead. It’s one of those interactive videos that require you to jump over to the official website for it and allow access to your Facebook posts. Below is the trailer for the video. Go here to actually check out the flash based interactive video:  I didn’t find the video all that impressive as not too much happens in it and the only interactive part is pulling a few photos from my facebook over. Maybe I missed something?

OFFICIAL “choose your own adventure” VID: Chairlift – Met Before

March 2, 2012

This is pretty rad. Chairlift has made a “choose your own adventure” style interactive music video for their great single Met Before. Use your arrow keys or click on the triangles when they appear to affect the outcome of the video as you view it. It seems interactive music videos are starting to shake things up a bit. I wonder if it’ll be a fad or it will become a greater force in the future. Enjoy the electro pop track and have fun playing with the video!
